Celtic fans are delighted with the news that Brendan Rodgers has been named as Scottish Premiership manager of the year.
The news was announced a short time ago on the official SPFL Twitter page.

It is a case of third time lucky for the Hoops boss, who missed out on the awards voted on by both the players and football journalists in Scotland, who both voted for Kilmarnock’s Steve Clarke.
Whilst fans are pleased that the manager has finally managed to win the award, one fan has claimed that Hoops boss will be ‘not that fussed’ about winning the accolade.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Rodgers winning the award:
He's going for a double treble and suffered 4 losses domestically this season. I'd say he deserves it.

Can imagine him not being that fussed but from a supporters point of view it's nice to see a manager getting an award who's actually won something.

It is quite odd that the Hoops boss has been overlooked for the manager of the year awards until now, as he has lead the Hoops to the verge of a second consecutive domestic treble.
However, it has to be said that Clarke has done a superb job for Kilmarnock, leading them from relegation candidates to a fifth place finish in the league table, and interestingly enough he is unbeaten in three league matches against Rodgers this season.
Hoops fans will feel that justice has been done though, and they will have no doubt that Rodgers deserves the award that has eluded him so far this season.
